In 1971, the young dentist, Joe Ceravolo, started the first regularly operating private dental clinic in Kingscote, coming over from Adelaide one day per week.
After five years, the practice sold to David Leane and opened for two days per week, growing to three days in 1984, when Ashley White joined the team.
A very happy business partnership of over 20 years ensued, with both David and Ashley flying over for two days every week.
At that time the dental surgery was located at rear of the council chambers in Dauncey Street.
In 2006 we relocated to our dental practice to the back of the hospital. The practice is now run by Ashley White, who was joined by Ingrid White in 2010.
We have a number of experienced locums who have filled in, returning several times as they love to work in the Practice with the friendly Island community.
